    Direct information from my sources on the ground in Kiev:

    Expect heavy losses for the SBU today.  It was some sort of "SBU day", like a celebration of some sorts, all the SBU hierarchy was in the offices today.

    It was "Den SBUshnika" today in 404.
    A professional fiesta day for them.

    Nu, z praznikom!

    Dont want to be that guy, but I found out your news report was from 2 years ago, still waiting on the DXL-5 sniper that is claimed at 7kms. Sadly FPV drones are the new snipers where clothing and EW systems are used to minimize them finding you.

    For the love of god, attack south from Belrus, close the border and end this mofo. If Ukraine reinforces this point then take odessa. Russia has enough forces to attack on several axes.

    Pavliuk: Russia building up group of 100,000 troops, might conduct summer offensive

    There is a possibility that Russia would build up a certain number of forces by the beginning of summer to launch an offensive in one of the axes, Commander of the Ukrainian Ground Forces, Lieutenant General Oleksandr Pavliuk has said.

    "We do not fully know Russia's plans. We only know the data they have, what they are creating. They are building up a group of more than 100,000 troops. It won't necessarily be an offensive. Perhaps they will replenish their units that are losing combat effectiveness. But there is a possibility that by the beginning of summer they may have certain forces to carry out offensive operations in one of the axes," he said on the national telethon Friday.

    According to Pavliuk, "for now these are the worst forecasts that such an offensive will be held."

    "I think we will do everything to cause maximum losses to the enemy, that is what we are doing now, so that all their resources that they form are involved in the battle by this time. But we are preparing for possible different developments of the situation," the general said.

    For the Binkov analysts like Arrow

    Read it and weep

    And BTW, it's a lot more than 100,000 troops - that's all UA and western intelligence want to say

    But the truth is a lot scarier than that

    Macron wouldn't be shitting his pants over 100k troops

    Today Ukraine is celebrating "The Day of the SBU" by the way - looks like Russia provided the fireworks.

    That "Sanatorium" in Odessa got hit by two Iskander-M OTRK missiles.
    (On Russian TG people talked about an SBU center with the codename "Holliday" was hit - not sure if that is this one or that in Kiev)

    Snipers are very effective in woody environement where drones are far less used due to obstacles. Plenty of video showed such sitiations where a single sniper could take out multiple target in matter of second.

    Note the time, during the day for maximum attendance.

    Missile Strike on Kiev — intel from @don_partizan

    Coordinates: 50.4092716, 30.5503017

    Today at around 10:30 AM, Russian forces launched a strike on the location of one of the Ukrainian security forces' units in Kiev.

    🔻It was established that the strike hit the address at Kikvidze Street, 32 - publicly available sources associate this building with the Civil Defense Headquarters and the Kyiv Academy of Decorative Arts and Design.

    🔻In fact, the building was empty, and nobody was inside. Under the "creative academy" there is a large basement space with a separate entrance from Saltykov-Shchedrin Street (this side of the destroyed building is not shown at all).

    ▪It is also noteworthy that local residents have repeatedly observed vehicles with black license plates marked with the series C6 parked near the "Academy of Decorative Arts and Design."

    📌Black plates are used by the SBU (Security Service of Ukraine) and the State Special Communications Service of Ukraine. The letters С, Р, Т, and the number 6 are allocated for their use. SBU employees use the code С6, while Р6 and Т6 are designations for the joint use of both services.

    🔻Currently, information has been received that the building was a covert facility of one of the structural units of the SBU. Loud claims that it was a "decision-making center" or "headquarters" raise doubts, but it can be confidently stated that the “basement” housed the operational staff of one of the special service's units.

    ▪Why exactly this object was targeted will probably remain a mystery, but considering that the SBU is involved in conducting a series of diversions and terrorist acts on the territory of the Russian Federation, it suggests that this location might have been used by employees engaged in recruitment, planning, organizing, and directly implementing such actions.

    🔻Unfortunately, a second missile was intercepted in the area of the Kiev Zhulyany airport, and its fragments fell on a building on Hutsulska Street, causing smoke in the area.

    A hypersonic missile with a blast radius of 100 meters would have damaged the neighboring 2 buildings, yet despite being less than 10 meters from the blast they remained intact. This suggests the missile hit a bunker so the explosion was underground leaving the 2 buildings intact

    A particular strategy seems quite evident here. Raise the alarm first, observe what happens, then.
    Those alarms don´t come out of the blue.
    NATO is revealing a lot about her radars and C4 systems.
    Then some of the Ukro radars will go active.
    Which leads to some ballistic/cruise/hypersonic/anti-radar missiles or drones coming after them.

    Rusian land forces numbers don't add up for a very long time.
    Some american news outlet claimed that Russia has around 300.000 soldiers directly in the SMO zone
    with an additional 500.000 behind them. And propably another million soldiers/volunteers in reserve.
    True or not?
    Don´t know.
    But the coming summer will be very interesting.

    For the love of god, attack south from Belrus, close the border and end this mofo.
    Wait for it.
    Anticipation is have the fun, I´ve been told.

    Unfortunately, a second missile was intercepted in the area of the Kiev Zhulyany airport,
    Other reports state that a Patriot unit was destroyed at the airport.

    But the coming summer will be very interesting.

    It is quite possible, as the number must be combined with Rosgvardia.
    Back in 2016, Rosgvardia had 340 000 personnel, in 84 units across all of Russia.
    Sure that only part were operational troops, while the majority was just administrative/support/special forces, but ... it has only grown up since.
    Which indicated that at least 100k are troops that can be used as light infantry. Achmat proves that it works just fine, if combined with heavy army units for assistance.
    Mariopol siege was one example.

    There was a pic from the backyard showing blown-up rubbles and with a clear view that there was some structure beneath it. With air vents and shafts.
    I guess that is the case, and the missile probably have not even hit this building directly, only the underground structure. The building is "collateral damage".

    I rather doubt Belarus wants to be dragged in to this just yet...

    And a mobilisation by Putin would mean more troops ready to fight... in maybe a year or so...

    He already has the pieces he wants to play with, the others are performing the vital mission of production and support...

    In recent years, we have seen something of a revival of the Cold War.
    The War in Ukraine can be analyzed as a US/NATO Low Intensity War against Russia.
    Something similar to what happened in the 80s, for example, in Nicaragua or Afghanistan.

    It is low intensity for NATO / USA, since they do not participate fully.
    Only giving weapons and some logistical support, intelligence, etc.
    A real war between Russia and the West would be far superior to what we are seeing.

    In addition, I am also referring to all the intelligence moves that the West uses against Russia and its allies.
    In the style of terrorism, protests, color revolutions, etc., etc.

    The Russian Armed Forces have launched a major offensive operation in the north of the Donetsk region. The goal is to capture the important city of Seversk

    Eight Ukrainian brigades and battalions occupy defensive positions in Seversk. According to Ukrainian sources, Russia has deployed 15 brigades to the area, ready to take offensive positions.

    A real war between Russia and the West would be far superior to what we are seeing.
    If the war would stay strictly conventional, not really.
    Russia would shot down more aircraft and would get the chance to use her AShM´s,
    but that would be the greatest difference.
    NATO would struggle to find so many soldiers like the Banderites.
    Or the tanks and artillery.
    As we could witness in the last 2 years the ammo situation in NATO was and is dire.
    Air defence?  Laughing

    That's like the 4th in a bit more than a week. Kh-35 seem to be the best weapon to destroy them. Maybe its seaker is better than the one of the kh-31 or its low flying path makes it give no warning to the target compare to a high flying kh-31.


    Weired they don't equipe those drones with a grenade and use them in suicide mode in case they spot some high value targets and have no missiles ready to fire. Damage will be smaller but still a chance to destroy any target.

    🇺🇦🇷🇺🚨‼ Ukraine put microphones on sticks all over Ukraine to track drones!

    Commander-in-Chief of the US Air Force in Europe James Hecker explained how the Ukrainian Shahed detection system works.

    8 thousand phones with a microphone were attached to towers across Ukraine, which makes it possible to track the direction and speed of drones. Also, a special person monitors the screen for possible raids.

    And then they are shot down by anti-aircraft artillery, which is cheaper than with Patriots.

    I think you are clearly referring only to Europe.


    How about the wars in the former Yugoslavia?

    In Bosnia-Hercegovina War around 100 000 people were killed, albeit that was the bloodiest of the secessionist Yugoslav wars.


    http://www.vojska.net/eng/armed-forces/


    Back in January or February of 2024 Zelensky claimed that 31 000 members of the Ukrainian armed forces were killed.

    Obviously I mean low intensity for USA/NATO. For Ukraine it is a green disaster, since it is losing thousands and thousands of men, in addition to weapons and territory.
    For Russia, it is putting a stop to NATO's advance towards its territory.
    As time goes by we will see some changes, as there will be a more direct confrontation between the USA / NATO and Russia / China / Axis of Resistance.
